It's a HIT! WOW! I was hesitant to try this recipe since I have a child who won't eat green things. He saw the spinach leaves go into the blender and I was sure I'd lost him at that point. Wrong! He LOVED it! It's quite sweet and refreshing. Everyone loved it. It has a fibrous texture, but no one seemed to mind that at all. They have renamed it to "Monster Mash" and asked that we have some floating eyeballs (grapes) next time.
This served the five of us with some to spare! The two youngest got 6 ounces each and the rest of us had 8 ounces.
- 2 bananas sliced if fresh (I used frozen bananas)
- 2 cups fresh grapes, washed
- 3 cups fresh spinach, washed
- 1 whole apple cored, peeled and sliced
- 12 ounces plain yogurt
Add the yogurt and banana first, then all other ingredients. Blend until smooth. You'll need to push things down a couple times to get it all blended, but it all will.
Pour and serve!
I'm making this again tomorrow at the kids' request. How's that for getting the green leafies into them? Works for me!
